BOOKS:

Mindfulness in Plain English 

by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana 

The title speaks for itself!


Buddha’s Brain 

by Rick Hanson -This very accessible book helped me to really understand the connection between meditation and the science of the brain/mind.


Awakening Joy 

by James Baraz and Shoshana Alexander - This book shifted my deeply ingrained “glass half empty” perspective to a fuller and happier outlook on life.


The Mindbody Prescription 

by Dr. John Sarno - Most meditators intuitively understand Dr. Sarno's belief that much physical pain is caused by a mind that seeks to distract attention from unacceptable emotions like rage. It has helped me immensely over the years with all sorts of pain issues.
